    Started using the "Brave" browser today after downloading and setting it up last night. Browser was written by the programmer who wrote Firefox but who was later forced out at Mozilla by the queers, freaks and perverts for supporting traditional marriage. Browser blocks all ads and popups which makes browsing quick and efficient again. Not a lot of instructions but most of the setup mirrors Firefox or is intuitive. Can be obtained free from

    Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript, continues to lead the technological revolution with Brave, an innovative concept in Internet browsers.    After blowing away the competition (read: Microsoft's Internet Explorer) with the Internet browser Firefox, Eich has come up with Brave, a nearly ad-free, lightning-fast browser that eliminates intrusive ads as well as common but unwanted tracking tack-ons.   A tech legend for his Java and Firefox contributions, Eich was betrayed by his contemporaries and forced out of business as CEO of Mozilla, the company behind Firefox, because he supported natural marriage...

    Microsoft has turned on a new set of Windows Tips that warn Windows 10 users that Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is draining their laptop’s battery. The solution, according to the notification, is to use Microsoft Edge. We reached out to Microsoft for clarification. “Microsoft Edge was designed exclusively for Windows 10 with features and functionality that enhance the browsing experience such as Cortana, easy sharing, reading, and researching,” a Microsoft spokesperson told VentureBeat. “These Windows Tips notifications were created to provide people with quick, easy information that can help them enhance their Windows 10 experience, including information that can...

    Firefox has gone nuts by rejecting the certificates from many legitimate websites including YouTube and Gmail. The instructions say to go to Advanced and create an exception for each website. This is still a problem because some websites cannot be added and others only last for one time only. I have been to the Settings tab and there is no security setting that I can find that addresses this issue. IE doesn't have this issue at all, just Firefox. Thanks for any suggestions?

    Conservative Hardliner ^ | May 14, 2016 | dc
    <p>I remember when Mozilla fired Brendan Eich for being a normal human being, I was sort of bummed that I was going to stop browsing with Firefox. I'm not really the organized boycotting type, but I am someone who simply refuses to participate in idiocy. If some anti-American Hollywood liberal wants to fight against a normal civilization, then I just stop watching their movies and buying their music. If a coffee establishment tells their baristas to engage with me about race when I'm trying to get my morning triple venti soy latte, then I go elsewhere. If one of my favorite conservative-leaning talk show hosts starts supporting a liberal for President, then I turn the dial. It's not that I keep a list, but if it's seared into my brain deep enough, then I certainly alter my habits as a consumer of products, services, and content. Conversely, if someone is under attack by Marxists, then I tend to overly support them, like the Chick-Fil-A scenario, where I was stuffing my face with spicy chicken sandwiches several times per week for months. Thank goodness that died down. Anyway, I knew whatever Eich ended up doing, if it was a product or service, I was going to be a customer. I have no idea what Eich's politics are, but I know he is someone worth supporting.</p>

    Mozilla developers have taken steps to ban the popular YouTube Unblocker add-on after it was caught altering browser security settings and even installing a second add-on without the user's consent. YouTube Unblocker is a Firefox add-on that allows users to view YouTube videos blocked in their country. It does so by using a collection of proxy servers to reroute YouTube content through countries in which the videos are whitelisted. This past weekend, a user complained about the add-on exhibiting sneaky behavior, saying that his Avast antivirus blocked a download coming from a third-party website as soon as he installed the...

    Microsoft is using a new tactic to keep Windows 10 users from switching away from its Edge browser. The first time Edge users search for “chrome” or “firefox” using Bing — presumably with the intent of downloading those browsers from Google or Mozilla, respectively — they are shown a serious-looking message at the top of the search results. “Microsoft recommends Microsoft Edge for Windows 10,” it says. A “Learn why” button next to that message brings you to a website showing off Edge’s features... The message only showed up the first time I searched for “chrome” and “firefox” in Edge,...

    Mozilla plans a campaign to stop or slow desertions from Firefox to Windows 10's new Edge browser because the OS's express setup changes previous defaults to Edge during an upgrade, according to published documents. Edge, introduced in Windows 10, will be the default browser out of the box. In fact, according to Mozilla -- supported by a video that showed what happened when Windows 7 was upgraded to Windows 10's build 10162 of July 2 -- those who upgrade by selecting "Express Settings," as most do, will find Edge the default even if they had previously specified a competitor like...

The organisation has traditionally shyed away from DRM as it considers the technology something that goes against the openness of the Mozilla platform. However, Mozilla was forced to admit in May 2014 that taking on DRM was essential to avoid losing ground to rivals by not being able to play streaming services such as Netflix and Spotify.

    Attackers could use fake certificate to get around protections. Mozilla has disabled an "opportunistic encryption" feature added to its Firefox browser last week, in order to fix a critical security flaw that allowed attackers to bypass HTTPS protections. The company last week released Firefox 37, which came with a new feature allowing connections to be encrypted even if a server didn't support HTTPS. This so-called "opportunistic encryption" acted as a bridge between plaintext HTTP and HTTPS connections based on either transport layer security (TLS) or the older secure sockets layer protocol. It allowed website owners who are unable to fully...

    Google’s Android has gobbled up market share world wide, now accounting for over 80% of all smartphone shipped globally. But when it comes to actually making money, Apple is eating all the profits as it continues its focus on premium devices. Today Strategy Analytics said that Apple in Q4 last year accounted for 89% of all smartphone profits, equating to $18.8 billion, with Android taking only 11%, or $2.4 billion. The blow for Android is softened only slightly less so only by the fact that other platform players like Microsoft, Blackberry and Firefox seemingly made no profit at all.

Use YesScript on sites that annoy you or hog your system resources. One click to the icon in the status bar turns scripts on or off for the current site. Unlike NoScript, YesScript does absolutely nothing to improve your security. I believe that Firefox is secure enough by default and that blocking all scripts by default is paranoia. YesScript strives to remove hassles from your browsing experience, rather than add them.

    Some Firefox users, cranky about the overhaul of the browser's user interface, have scrambled to find ways to make the latest version look more like older editions. Two weeks ago, Mozilla launched Firefox 29, the first production-grade version that sported the new "Australis" UI. The visual redesign, the most dramatic for Firefox since March 2011, was Mozilla's attempt to both streamline the browser's look and feel and standardize it across all platforms, from desktop to mobile. Many of Australis' visual changes were subtle, such as more rounded tabs, inactive tabs that faded deeper into the background and a revamped customization...

    If disposing of a CEO for donating to an unfashionable political cause didn't repulse you enough to keep from using the (overrated imho) Firefox web browser, perhaps their online POLITICAL censorship will... or maybe you don't mind being told what you can read, either. Mozilla Firefox users this week were finding articles pertaining to imploding 'progressive' WH causes/initiatives ('gender equality', 'war on women') blocked and substituted by leftist propaganda... American Thinker: Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with...

    Last Thursday, Mozilla, the company that’s home to the web browser Firefox, forced the resignation of CEO Brendan Eich. What, precisely, had Eich done wrong? Back in 2008, Eich had donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 effort backing traditional marriage in California. Dating website OKCupid posted a ban on Firefox traffic, issuing a message to Firefox users instead: “Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame, and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure.” That ban reportedly prompted the action at Mozilla.Of course, it was the people pushing for Eich’s ouster who were...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 4/8/2014 | Jeremy Boreing
    On Tuesday the powerful conservative website RedState joined the movement - started last Thursday by this publication - to protest Mozilla's decision to force out its CEO Brendan Eich over a personal donation he made over six years ago to a pro-traditional marriage campaign by blocking users of the company's hit web-browser Firefox.  Visitors to the site were re-directed to a landing page where they were informed that RedState found itself in conflict with the values of Mozilla and suggesting other alternative browsers.  "... we wanted to remind people that the totalitarian impulse of the Mozilla corporation is real, and if you...

    The recent ousting of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich highlights not just the huge cultural divide on the gay marriage debate, but our nation's dangerous misunderstanding of the term "tolerance." Tolerance is an absolute necessity in any free society. As defined by Merriam-Webster, tolerance is the willingness to accept feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different from your own. As we live in a society of more than 300 million diverse individuals, this is an essential nature to ensure domestic tranquility. The entire concept of liberty depends on each and every one of us accept that there are beliefs, attitudes and...

    So I'm watching this whole "Firefox" uninstall effort going on, with some amusement. Y'all should understand that Google and Firefox have ways of winning even if you uninstall Firefox. I'll cover that in the body of my thread below

    And not just gay marriage. The congressman, Chris Cannon, also opposed adoptions by gay couples and laws prohibiting discrimination in hiring gays. Sam Yagan’s donation, in other words, was more of a multi-spectrum anti-gay contribution than Brendan Eich’s $1,000 gift to support Prop 8 and yet he took it upon himself to be the tip of the spear in the “Eich must go” movement. Says Rick Moran of Yagan’s past, “The gay mafia is never around when you need them.” The Daily Caller actually had this five days ago but it’s breaking big today because of Mother Jones. Never underestimate...
  • Did Google’s $1 Billion Force Mozilla to Dump Brendan Eich?

    This is highly speculative, but considering that some people are moving from Firefox to Chrome, it may be worth thinking about. Over the years, Mozilla’s reliance on Google has continued to grow. Indeed, in its report on Brendan Eich’s promotion to CEO of Mozilla, the WSJ noted that “Google accounted for nearly 90% of Mozilla’s $311 million in revenue.”So, with its Sugar Daddy having also gone on record as being virulently opposed to Proposition 8, to think that that Google’s support didn’t enter into discussions of whether Prop 8 backer Eich should stay or go seems, well, pretty much unthinkable.“It...
  • So, was evisceration of Brendan Eich “a PR stunt … nothing but a PR stunt”?

    If people were played here, when does the boycott of OKCupid start? A narrative is emerging that the entire Brendan Eich evisceration campaign was a public relations stunt by OKCupid. That narrative is emerging from the left, based on facts uncovered by the right.Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller was the first to report that the founder of OKCupid, who also is the CEO of, donated many years ago to an anti-gay marriage congressman: Sam Yagan, who is currently CEO of the Match Group, which controls OkCupid, donated $500 to Barack Obama in 2007 and 2008 back when he...
